Background

The idea for a currency first appeared in Lytera's early history, where a planned shared currency between it and The Republic of Clubhausia was considered. The plans fell through after the Great Ruislip War however, and Lytera stuck with using the Pound, Ideas for a currency then circulated again in 2018, during the anniversary of the Civil War. The currency was planned for a 2019 release, with work beginning on it's design in June of 2019. On August 10th, the currency came into circulation, the same day the designs were first shown. In 2020, with Lytera severing relations with the United Kingdom, the currency was pegged to the Euro.
